Hey everyone. I was wondering where I should start for painting cloth. The effect I'm looking for is like the on the link below:


Does anyone know how he did this?

You sure it isn't a 3D render?

yes i'm sure.This image can only be found in his 3D-section, so I think you need to have your eyes checked.

use the smudge tool with some dodge and burn.

but be aware that those folds may be modeled as well as bump/displacement mapped...ie it may not just be the texure map

ummm I guess you never herd of texture mapping before.You guess too much, like guessing that people know how to decrypt your first post, when all you want is a simple texture... :rolleyes:

use the smudge tool with some dodge and burn.You forget to mention a few things. The default smudge tool isn't the greatest. It's slightly better though when you turn off spacing for this tool in the brushes palette.
As for dogde and burn, be careful when you use them, every photoshop painter can tell you that. You're actually painting black or white, giving the user the false impression as if they're changing the luminousity.

Here's an example:

Elysian could you come up with a quick and dirty example of a texture map like the one in the first post I made (the truck cover)

ummm I guess you never herd of texture mapping before...do you mean texture maping in Photoshop? And of so, can you give few guidlines on how to achieve that (I have't done such thing in PS yet)

Misse do you work in 3d? Texture mapping refers to adding colour maps to your models, here is a link that has texture tutorials, http://www.cgtalk.com/showthread.php?t=77484
